Adult Forum & Enrichment

Adult Forum is a Sunday morning adult education series coordinated by a team of lay leaders.  It features presentations and discussions on a wide range of historical and contemporary topics and issues that affect the church and its members. You are invited to attend all sessions, or attend whenever the topics might interest you. We meet on Sundays 9:45 - 10:30 am in the Music/Media room in the basement of the Education Building.  Coffee is provided;  hope to see you there!

“The Rhetoric of Saint Paul” begins September 21. This presentation looks at Paul’s letters as persuasive writing. In the arguments he makes and through the positons he takes on the issues raised, Paul “defines the brand” of what it means to be Christian. This topic allows us to compare our current understanding of Christian concepts with the oldest known writings on the subject. 

Here is the planned agenda for the first half of the year.  Check back;  plans can change.
